OVERVIEW

After seeing the incredible short Blow Out Sale (by Timothy Kendall, Chris Marrs & Danny Pudi) for the Interpretations Film Contest, we were inspired to create an action film based on some of our favorite action films and video games growing up. Re-living and acting out our favorite action scenes was more fun than you can imagine!
